by on Jun.15, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 252rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, now that Einstein’s diaries show that he was xenophobic against Asians, isn’t it about time we no-platformed special and general relativity?

Every now and then we like to break up the flow, and include a good episode. This is one of those.

We begin with discussions of HRH Prince Charles’ need for a cream tea, move on to Trump vs N Korea, and then Nick advocates holocausts, both nuclear and Nazi.

John tells a story of Bodmin Jail’s incredibly balanced perspective on paranormal phenomena, we have a message from our sponsor, and we dive into our podcast subscriptions.

by on May.24, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 251rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, the royal wedding.

Despite this, Nick talks about the royal wedding at length, which is why he’s now in prison forever.

More importantly, to celebrate our landmark two hundred and fifty-first episode, we’re in the same room! There’s much blather about weddings in general, then this naturally moves on to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, new kitchens, and embarrassed foxes.

We discover the secret of immortality: kill millions of people, talk holidays, and reconsider the legacy of Toe Knee B Liar.

by on Apr.03, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 249nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, are laptops finally dead?

A transatlantic episode, recorded about a week and a half ago, with John in San Francisco and Nick in the exotic climes of London. What do we talk about? Who knows! It was a week and a half ago, 7am, and then there was jetlag. But we can guarantee it was all jolly good.

Rum Doings Episode 248: Mad Medication

by on Mar.13, 2018, under Rum Doings

In our 248rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, with the death of Ken Dodd, is there any hope for family friendly light entertainment?

That’s right, we’re back! After a whole week off. We discuss the delightful pick-up artist game Super Seducer, and then try to quite sensibly work out what advice actually is useful for single humans. There’s front door lock chat, like everyone had been hoping for. And then we talk TV recommendations because it’s been a while.

Then Nick starts lamenting his failure to become evil, and John protests his terror of the same.

by on Dec.12, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 246nd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, with the passing of Keith Chegwin, is light entertainment finally gone forever?

Rum Doings Episode 245: If We Know Anything, Jesus Ate Brisket

by on Nov.22, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 245rd ever Rum Doings, our topic is, is the only solution to the Christmas advert problem to require a referendum before broadcast?

Keeping it light this week (well, last, we recorded it last week), we begin by trying to find the line between confusion and racism, then discuss the future of Zimbabwe and South Africa, and then delve into just how un-left the American left wing is. See, light stuff!

We ask whether tweets from your past should be allowed to determine your future, whether it’s ever okay to criticise someone for being fat, and who is worse, Peter Hitchens or Jacob Rees-Mogg. It’s such a trivial episode all round.

Rum Doings Episode 244: Can I Still Have A Conker?

by on Nov.03, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 244th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, now Corbyn’s appearing on Gogglebox, is he finally ready to become Prime Minister?

One of our most argumentative episodes, this was recorded last week and then due to John’s ineptitude, only uploaded now. So pre-Spacey, but post-Weinstein, we loudly argue about where blame lies. There’s also some cruise talk, and a bit about turning 40.

by on Oct.11, 2017, under Rum Doings

In our 243th ever Rum Doings, our topic is, post Uber, what is Britain’s best paving substrate?

Obviously we discuss Theresa’s splendid speech, and Weinstein’s wayward penis (recorded on Monday, so before a lot more of the revelations). We ponder the deaths of major figures, and solve the urination crisis.
